Etymology & Historical Origin - Kayden

Kayden is a made-up Americanized spelling of the Gaelic name Caden which originated as a surname, Mac Cadáin (meaning son of Cadáin). The Gaelic word “cadáin” possibly means ‘battler, fighter’ but the etymology is up for debate. It’s also thought the name is derived from Adam, the first man, which would give the meaning ‘ground, earth.’ The MacCadáin clan was responsible for maintaining and managing the church land in their Scottish localities, a position they held from late medieval times into the early modern era (which would lend the name nicely toward Adam’s meaning; i.e., taking care of the church ‘ground’). The spelling variant Kayden has barely been in existence for 10 years.

Popularity of the Name Kayden

Kayden is now the most popular spelling of this ultra-trendy name, just recently surpassing the usage of Kaden and Caden (now #2 and 3 respectively in terms of popularity). It is also the only spelling being used for baby girls with enough frequency to land a spot on the female Top 1000 list too (although Kayden remains WAY more popular for little boys). The crazy amount of Americanized spelling mutations (Caden, Caiden, Cayden, Kaden, Kadin, Kadyn, Kaeden, and Kaiden) is almost silly. And the arguably overused “-aden” boy names seems to be experiencing a bit of a backlash right now due to their prevalence (Aiden, Kaden, Jaden, Braden, etc). Parents should consider Caden, et al, as a highly trendy name. It’s a good choice for parents who like to follow the masses.
